Thank you all!
Gail has been struggling with colon cancer for over 3 years. She was diagnosed just after Old Songs in 2004. She was officially given 14 months after serious emergency surgery. Now after lots of chemo and radiation, the doctors have sent her home to die, but our Christian community is still praying for her healing to manifest --"by His stripes WE WERE Healed" ! She is weak, but she has not given up. We need all positive prayers even if you don't quite agree with her theology.
Thanks again.

MD, there's a beautiful slide show of my favourite prayer on This Page. I've posted the words below. May they bring comfort and peace for you both:

Prayer of Protection
- James Dillet Freeman -

The light of God surrounds us.
The love of God enfolds us.
The power of God protects us.
The presence of God watches over us.
Wherever we are,
God is.
And all is well.

Gail is clearly in end times now, but she is still here. She wants all her four children to surround her so that she can bless them, and then go in peace as did the Old Testament Patriarchs. Unfortunately, she hasn't been able to speak for days. Keep on praying.

Oddly Jim, we not only want to send you our sympathies but somehow want to say thank you as well. The end comes to us all and many times all too soon. Gail faced hers with dignity, honor, courage, and grace..........No one can do better. Thanks for sharing her beautiful example and in these difficult times, may the heartfelt wishes of these many 'Catters give you the strength they have often given me.

The hole you feel in your heart will soon be healed with the overflow of memories of your life together. Hold tight to your family.

Jim, thank you for the privilege of sharing this blessed time with you. Be good to yourself for the long period of saying all the goodbyes that will come up for you, and know that our Lord holds you all in the palm of his hand-- in times you can feel Him and times when you don't.

I hope that in the days to come, Mudcat will be a place where you can talk about Gail, and help us to know her as you did. We'll be right here for you, any time.

Last Friday we had Gail's Memorial service. It was well attended by dancing and music friends, and church people. We started out with old, somber Baptist hymns and ended with some very upbeat music that Gail wrote. Mudcat was represented by "Guest Julia", as well as me.

I need to mention that Gail got her final wish. She waited for all her children to assemble and be blessed. They each took her hand, and announced "I'm ---, and I'm here to receive my blessing!" Five minutes after completing the blessings, she was gone.

I am so sorry MaineDog but I am so thankfu that she was able to be surrounded by her family as she wanted. I have no children and my husbvand is everything to me. I cannot imagine living without him. He and I will be praying for you and Gail's children as you begin to live life without her here on earth. The service sounds like it was wonderful. God bless.

i am finding this difficult to say ...... but you and your family have all my best thaughts and wishes! Even though I said nothing whilst she was living you are in my thaughts now.
It is difficult because I will be in your shoes soon enough as my wife has "the big C" and treatment will only put off the inevitable! We can only trust that it is in Gods will that it is so! I believe that the measure of our words and deeds is the love we leave behind us, and if so   your wife has had a full life and this should be celebrated!
All the best
Dave

Well, it's been three months now. I'm over the shock of it, but I think that the "why?" question may never be answered.
I'm finding that the housework and chores are much less bad than I expected, when done to my level of perfection (fairly low), and the dog is easily managed except on long trips when he has to be kept in a kennel. I'm gradually training him to stay loose at home without doing damage, so far so good as long as I don't leave anything edible around. Even so, he's only good for about 6 hours.
I have been doing more music and dancing, which is good, and I'm looking up old friends that I lost track of over the past 4 years. This afternoon is a music-potluck that is an annual event, and the weather is ok, so I am off to play.

We will start our monthly Song Circle for 2008 this month. Early afternoon - 2PM - on the fourth Saturday.
Beds available here and there.
Afternoon buffet and probably pizza and salad later. Haven't really thought it through. But there will be good music and good friends. If the puppy is safe around people and other dogs, he is welcome too.

I'm glad you're getting out with people, MD.

My experience with big young dogs is they do calm down... at about age four, when they are officially mature. Our old girl was rather exhausting those early years, had more energy and more interest in exploring where she shouldn't than I could sometimes cope with. And then, like magic, she hit four and turned into a wonderful obedient loving creature, a delight to walk with and live with, and a great comforter in times of sadness.

like gnu, I have no idea how I missed this thread.

I am so sorry, Jim, I wish I could have visited again with you and Gail.

As well as being a thoroughly loveable person, Gail was a very talented kiltmaker, and the MacLeod tartan kilt she made for me is one of my most treasured possessions, even more treasured now ...

wishing you all that you need to see you through this difficult time

I hope you be able to tell us if you don't feel you have that.

A sorrow shared isn't a sorrow halved, but its something

Think of your friends on mudcat - all of whom meant very deeply these words of comfort, and try not to feel lonely

Hello friends,
The latest news is that Gail has been put to rest in her favorite cruising area -- Penobscot Bay, just east of Rockland. Family and friends went out on a chartered ketch, on a relatively calm day, and we had our final earthly parting.

The next event is going to be more fun.

We're having a memorial dance for her on Nov 16 in East Concord NH, that's a Sunday, from 7:30 to 10:30. All of Gail's friends are invited to dance contra, English Country, and Scottish Country, and those who know how may also play in the band.

More details later

Jim
